Minecraft has been around us for decades and has changed a lot during this time, much like the evolution of life, Minecraft has evolved into a much dense and better game. We’ll look back at Minecraft’s history, and in this post, we’ll look at the Founder’s first ‘working name’ for the game.

What was the Founder’s First ‘Working Name’ for Minecraft?

The Founder of Minecraft, Markus “Notch” Persson, had a lot of working names for the game before finally settling on Minecraft. Some of these working names were:

– Cave Game

– Dungeon Game

– Survival Game

Notch finally settled on Minecraft because he felt it was the most accurate description of the game. The word “mine” in Minecraft refers to the player mining resources in the game, and the word “craft” refers to the player crafting items from those resources. Notch has said that he originally wanted to call the game “Cave Game”, but he eventually changed it to “Minecraft” because he thought it sounded more like a proper noun. Interestingly, the name “Minecraft” was actually suggested to Notch by a friend of his, who also happened to be the one who came up with the game’s now-iconic logo.
